Sir: Am I the only professional scientist in this country who was amazed to discover that the post of Minister of Science, previously held on a part-time basis by David Hunt, has temporarily vanished in the Government reshuffle? No one seems to have noticed. Are we to assume that John Major has at last come to the conclusion that he might as well be honest about this Government's attitude towards science and simply forget it?
